Free Architecture

The first solo show in the UK by Mexican artist, Adam Wiseman.

at Chalton Gallery

Wiseman is a photographer whose distinctive artistic career has been marked by his relationship to photojournalism. His subjects are clearly interposed with his longstanding understanding of image as something between document and intersubjectivity.

For his exhibition at Chalton Gallery, Wiseman has installed the work to reference the window display of a typical British estate agent. Images of houses and apartments are substituted for the fantastical homes of the Mexican countryside. Sited in a Central London neighbourhood that is currently experiencing the impact of a massive regenerative effort, the work sets up a framework to explore questions of dis-placement, re-placement and de-territorialisation within a globalized capitalist economy.

Born in Mexico City in 1970, Wiseman has lived in Mexico, NY, Scotland and Brazil. He has a BA from NYU in Ethnographic Film (1992) and completed the Documentary Program at the International Center of Photography in NY (1996).
